Governing bodies of sports in Cyprus include the Cyprus Football Association, Cyprus Basketball Federation, Cyprus Volleyball Federation, Cyprus Automobile Association, Cyprus Badminton Federation,[104] , Cyprus Cricket Association and the Cyprus Rugby Federation.

Football is by far the most popular spectator sport. There have been many accomplishments on the European scale by several teams, but most importantly the entrance in the UEFA Champions League Group Stage as firstly achieved in 2008 by Anorthosis Famagusta FC and APOEL FC in 2009. The Cyprus League is nowadays considered as quite competitive and includes notable teams such as AEK Larnaca FC, Nea Salamis Famagusta FC, AC Omonia, Apollon FC and AEL Lemesos. Stadiums or sports venues in Cyprus include the GSP Stadium (the largest in Cyprus), Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium, Ammochostos Stadium, Neo GSZ Stadium, Tsirion Stadium, and Makario Stadium. Cyprus, also has a football national team which in the last decade has evolved to a promising squad within the European rankings.

Apart from the main interest in football, Cyprus has exhibited certain accomplishments in other sports. Marcos Baghdatis is one of the most successful tennis players in international stage. He was a finalist at the Australian Open in 2006, and reached the Wimbledon semi-final in the same year. Also Kyriakos Ioannou a Cypriot high jumper achieved a jump of 2.35 m at the 11th IAAF World Championships in Athletics held in Osaka, Japan, in 2007 winning the bronze medal.
